Mastodon, sort of

The people of Saltville VA do love them some mastodon.  This rather original representation of the long extinct (12,000 years, give or take) mammal was apparently used in parades and, since it’s been left out in the open, it’s gradually getting a bit on the shaggy side (to paraphrase a country song, “I like my mastodons a little on the shaggy side.”).
